Arsenal XI vs Leicester: Confirmed squad news, predicted line-up and latest Premier League injuries

Smith Rowe tested positive for the virus ahead of Arsenal’s game against Watford last week, forcing him to miss the 3-2 win.

The attacking midfielder is back available now and rivals Gabriel Martinelli to start against the Foxes.

The Gunners will, however, be without right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu as he is struggling with a calf problem.

It means Cedric Soares must start in defense and Arteta could name the same XI that beat Watford as Arsenal look to secure five Premier League wins in a row.

“Tomiyasu, we’re still evaluating him because we’re taking time to try to protect him and get him to come in the best and safest way possible so he can help the team as quickly as possible,” said Mikel Arteta.

“At the minute, it looks like Emile is going to be available.

Arsenal probably XI: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Holding, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette.
